5. Why are organic clothes better? Reasons for wearing Organic clothes.

Clothes made from organic fabrics are better than the conventional ones in many ways. Organic fabrics along with herbal dyes help in removing the toxic effect of the human body sweat.

Conventional Textile processing includes the use of potentially harmful and toxic chemicals at each stage of manufacture. Most of the processing applications like scoring, bleaching, dyeing and finishing include the use of such chemicals which have associated environmental impacts and social concerns. These are contributing to industrial pollution, air and water and soil contamination every day. It also affects the economic and physical health of the farmers and industrial workers. Associated physical problems can be asthma and other respiratory problems, and skin and lung diseases among many industrial workers.

Bhu:sattva's organic clothing are made from organic fabrics which are developed without the use of any harmful substance. It is our way of bringing out the purity of nature.

6. How do I know if something is organic?

Some clothing may well be labeled as organic, but the safest way to tell if something is genuinely organic is to make sure it's certified. Organic Exchange standards (OE 100 and OE Blended) were developed to support organic product integrity by filling a gap in the market; companies needed a way to validate the presence of organic fiber in their finished catalouge. One last important development in organic textile standards has been the development of the Global Textile Standard (GOTS) that begins the process of harmonizing all the different and slightly varying organic textile standards.

Bhusattva uses 100% GOTS Certified Organic Silk/Cotton/Fabrics.

7. Why does organic cost more?

It's true that organic goods usually cost about 30% more to buy than conventional catalouge. That's because organic farmers are driven by quality and ethics rather than speed and quantity. Crop yields are often slightly lower than on conventional farms, harvesting is usually done by hand, and crop rotation is practiced in line with organic certification. As it is initially difficult (practically and economically) to switch to organic methods, there are far fewer organic farms than conventional ones. It makes finding organic produce all the more difficult.
